While there are lots of music streaming services around, Spotify is slowly but surely becoming the most popular web subscription-based music streaming service worldwide. Featured with a catalog of 82 million songs, several social features and clever new tools, Spotify offers users unlimited access and stream to an extremely wide variety of audio tracks, artists, genres, albums and playlists. There are mainly two tiers provided by Spotify for individuals: a free tier, a $9.99-a-month Premium tier. The Free tier is ad supported. Features like song selection, skipping tracks, and saving music for offline listening are limited or blocked compared to the paid tiers. The Premium tier is Spotify's flagship product. Spotify claims that all the limits of Free tier will be removed after subscribing for a monthly fee. For $10-a-month you get unlimited access to Spotify’s catalog, an uninterrupted flow of music at all times, and the ability to download tracks for offline listening.
